Why are there scuff marks on new asphalt surfaces?

Scuffing of newly sealed or paved surfaces are inevitable as it is the nature of asphalt material combined with hot weather. After about a month those scuff marks are rarely noticeable. The scuffs are just the sand being displaced and will wash away. Asphalt requires about 6 months to fully cure. Until that time it is tender and best to be a little careful. Avoid tight turns, and turning the steering wheel when the vehicle is not moving. Avoid sudden stops if you can.
